PHILOSOPHY

Understanding the way, a client lives and functions in their space is an important part of creating an ideal environment.  Bringing together the perfect team and strong collaboration is the best way to achieve design success and our firm, Thomas Grae, discovers the personal joys of every client.  Our personal attention to every project is exceptional and we have strived to build relationships with all disciplines that are part of the design team; from the client to the architects and sub-contractors as well as craftsmen, we are able to achieve sophisticated elegance without sacrificing comfort and livability and do all of this on time and within established budgets.  We hope that you will see these core values reflected in each project, that you will notice no two are alike and that by working closely together we are able to reflect the unique personality of each client

SHAYNAEH M. THOMAS

Lead Designer

For more than 13 years, Shaynaeh has been heavily influenced by her environment, always organizing and arranging possessions with meaning and purpose.   Her portfolio of projects exhibits her trademark style of curating timeless and sophisticated spaces, finely attuned to the client’s lifestyle and taste.  She evaluates the home’s physical space, its surroundings, its bones, and its acceptance of light. From there, she forms a cohesive design that exposes the home’s intended beauty and maximizes its functionality.  Shaynaeh’s approach to interior design is intentional and comprehensive. Every object she brings into a home is carefully considered for both form and function that curates into stunning interiors with impeccable attention to detail.  

She began her career by obtaining her undergraduate degree in Marketing and an MBA in business administration.  Post-graduation, she further honed her skills working for 2 Fortune 500 companies, UPS and Kimberly Clark in Atlanta, GA.  As co-Principal of Thomas Grae, she continues to solicit her services to her clients and continue to be inspired to create the unexpected.

GEORGE T. THOMAS

Contractor

An entrepreneur at heart, he brings you more than 15 years of construction experience with a degree of professionalism, personal commitment, enthusiasm and meticulous attention to detail in all of our construction projects.  George knew very early that he loved the building trade—in fact, it’s in his DNA. His grandfather was a well-known local builder and that tradition continued down to his son and George’s father, George Thomas Sr. George’s family background allowed him the ability to research and develop his skills from an early age. With family roots in commercial and residential construction, George developed an appreciation of architecture, construction management, and quality of materials.
